Remcan Launches Material Handling Service

Here at Remcan, we don’t like to stay in one place. To keep up with the growing demand for railway maintenance and construction, we are expanding our full service offering to Eastern Canada. This means that all Class I railroad companies and industry providers can take advantage of the trusted rail services Remcan provides, from British Columbia to Nova Scotia.

“10 years ago we started out as a small railway contractor in Langley, BC and have been making our mark on Western Canada ever since,” explains Jason Thomas, Chief Operating Officer at Remcan. “We want to keep expanding our market leading service programs to all rail customers across Canada.”

Remcan Introduces Material Handling Service

We are also excited to announce the launch of our newest service offering for railway material handling. Material handling services are used to distribute and pick up new rails, ties, and other track materials (OTM). Whatever your material distribution needs, our experienced operators can load it or unload it quickly and safely.

We currently have units working in the Quebec and Atlantic Regions. Take a look at some of the pictures we were able to capture of our equipment on the job.

We offer this new handling service to all Class I railroads across the country. We are available for distribution or pickup before and after any capital programs, tie gang or rail gang projects. Our material handling equipment includes:

  • Shuttle wagon
  • Excavator with grapple
  • Magnet and buckets
  • 3 railway cars

As a pioneer for railway safety, our equipment is certified to the highest safety standards. Remcan’s experienced team designed and re-manufactured 6 railway cars in conjunction with Ronsco at their Montreal facility to build a safety system to enhance the work environment of our operators.
